Aberlyn Level Crossing on the Charlestown Railway 1894 NBR alignment. View north towards Merryhill. During the Falklands War in 1982 when the branch trains to and from RNAD Crombie grew from the usual one per day to around 5 per day the photographer occasionally assisted the traincrew here by opening and closing the crossing gates for them - on one occasion to be met not by a 'thank you' from the guard but 'mind you close they gates!'.
